At 4h00, on July 17, 2018 By Christian Gendron

On July 17th on the Parx track in the 7th race (6 Furlongs / Main Track), a bet on No 6 Saratoga Wildcat (6/1) and No 7 Ruble. The latter will be the favorite and the horse to beat. Unlike harness racing, it is harder to line up multiple consecutive wins in the gallop and Ruble counts 5 in 6 starts. Today, I anticipate strong opposition from Saratoga Wildcat who finished third in his last start by chasing from start to finish a great favorite (2/5). He might have beaten her if the same horse had not squeezed to the right, forcing Saratoga to lose some momentum by forcing him to cut inside.
